“The Balloon Quest” is an ambitious 2,5d indie game platformer (PC & Mac) which will win you over with a lot of love for detail and fresh gameplay mechanics. The game revolves around the development of two little kids: a boy and his sister with her balloon. They live through adventures together and have to learn how to cooperate as they are diving further and further into their own, lovingly designed fantasy world. The game addresses not only practiced players but the whole family, and is also suitable for a younger target group. The gameplay requires both skills as well as riddle solving abilities and combinatory thinking, and shows that computer games also provide a ton of fun without any violence and bloodshed.
This game won the German Developer Award 2013, Bluebyte Ubisoft Newcomer Award, 2nd place.
